7:02 pm
ohio with 18 electoral votes. crucial if the governor wants to win next month. you may have heard by now no republican has ever won the white house without taking ohio. governor romney began his day in the buckeye state with debate preparation before attending a pair of rallies where he continued to fire up supporters appearing to still build on the success and momentum he accomplished at the first presidential debate. here he is from just about an hour ago. >> i love america. i believe in america. i believe in you. i believe we are coming back. but i need your help as well. i need you to vote. i need you to get other people vote from barack obama to come join our team. if we get ohio we will be able to take back america and keep it strong. >> campaign carl cameron begins our live coverage tonight on the trail with team romney in ohio. governor romney today focusing on trade in ohio. >> reporter: that's right,
7:03 pm
harris. literally on the trail tonight as we are on i-75 on the romney bus. you can see the motorcade as we head towards dayton wrapping up this day in the buckeye state. ohio is critical for mr. romney and he knows that he needs to win it here. he stopped in lebanon ohio just a little while ago. and went by a hotel owned by his debate sparring partner rob port mapp. the golding lamb. historic hotel. 12 liz presidents hav12 presidd there. rallies each time talking about obama and beating up for are not cracking down on china's trade practices. as aggressively as mr. romney promises he would. he drove that point home. paul ryan on the campaign trail in ohio as well today. the romney-ryan ticket has been spending more time in ohio than in the country. here is a little bit from governor romney at his last event. thehis president on friday the
7:04 pm
administration was to put out hasanswer to the question chas china manipulated their currency or not. they were supposed to designate that on friday. they said we will not do that. we will wait until after the election to do that. seven times so far they passed the buck on that. i'm not going to pass that off. on day one i will label china a currency manipulator and get serious about making sure that people don't cheat when it comes to trade. >> reporter: the obama administration asserted that doing such tough crackdowns on china could lead to a trade war of the fastest growing economy in the word and they said that mr. romney hasn't been entirely pure when it comes to doing business with china himself in his private life and private business experience. the romney campaign says it is all excuses and time for the u.s. government to stop putting up with china's trade practices and currency manipulation and
7:05 pm
romney says he would take steps on day one to correct that practice. >> the debate coming up quickly. right off the top we showed viewers governor romney in ohio from early talking about success and alluding to how much fun he had on the first presidential debate. now, a couple of days away from the next one and i understand he will be off the trail preparing for that. what else? >> reporter: that's right. talking about the debate last week has been one of his biggest rallying cries in front of big crowds ever since it happened. seems to have been a big huge momentum boost for mr. romney. he did debate prep with his senior strategist and rob portman today. tomorrow he will be doing a lot of work with his team. they recognize because this s a town hall meeting and they will take questions from the public it is an opportunity for them to really connect with real voters as opposed to taking questions from the press. mr. romney down on monday as well for additional debate prep. a sign of just how important this is for him. they consider is a pivotal opportunity and to make the point that because the
7:06 pm
president had such a poor review and by his own admission don't have a good performance in the last debate the onus is on the president. if he doesn't show a strong performance the romney campaign momentum will only build. >> the words on the screen say carl cameron is on the trail and we can see the trail right out of the back of the bus. good to see you, thank you. >> i mentioned president obama is in williamsburg virginia tonight. he is also preparing to face governor romney on tuesday night. part of his practice includes mock exchanges with massachusetts senator john kerry who is playing the role of governor romney. chief white house correspondent ed henry is traveling with the the president. it sounded like some democrats think the vice president did a better job in his debate than the president. >> reporter: no doubt about it, harris. and there is fear in the obama camp that they are running out of time to sort of change the narrative on all of that.
7:07 pm
they are still confident the president can turn that momentum around. and you are right, vice president biden got some rave reviews from democrats in terms of making the case for the president's policies. the president is now holed up here at the kings mill resort in williamsburg virginia. it is a battleground state and enables him to sort of keep his name out here and get local media coverage in the critical state of virginia but also he is sort of holed up trying to make sure that he does the homework and gets ready for the second debate. take a listen to how jay carney yesterday described vice president biden's performance in thursday night's debate against paul ryan. take a listen now. >> i took extreme pleasure in watching the debate last night because of the way that he demonstrated his passion and his wisdom and the joy that he brings to the job of serving the american people as vice president and of working with this president to bring about
7:08 pm
positive change for the middle class and for this country. >> reporter: what is significant about that is you hear jay carney going on and on about the passion and joy that vice president biden brought to his performance. democrats in private have been imploring the president to bring that kind of passion and zip on tuesday night at hofstra. that is the pressure on him is to do just that, harris. >> even the president himself alluded to the fact that there is things he wants to do differently. how will he do that? what will it look like? >> reporter: you can expect him to be a bit mor more aggressivd maybe go after mitt romney's private business career as karl mentioned more than the president did the first time around. spoke to one of of the president's spokespeople earlier and she said governor romney has been making pitch pitches all of his life and he knows how to say what people want to hear whether that was during his time at bain or during the dozens of time halls
7:09 pm
in the primary. what is significant is the word bain mentioned in there. a word that the president never brought up in the debate much to the chagrin of democrats. they would like to see a sharper contrast and him bring subjects like that up tuesday night, harris. >> we have seen for the romney ryan ticket stars like kid rock take the stage in michigan and i understand the president is also going to bring out big names to fire up his base. >> bubba and bruce i guess. former president bill clinton and bruce springsteen. in the critical state of ohio. significant of course, because of a number of reason. politically shows while the president has been up in the polls in ohio they are feeling the heat in what republicans have been calling mitt-mentum. watching the polls fire up in
7:10 pm
ohio. and, of course, you remember when he himself was running for president in 1992, bill clinton took ought the saxophone. see whether or not he does that with bruce springsteen. >> i will follow you on twitter and watch for that. thank you very much. you can watch the next presidential debate right here on fox news channel. bret baier and ma megyn kelly. the white house getting blasted in a letter now from former cia director general michael haydn and former homeland security secretary michael chertoff. also tonight a senate committee now says itle investigate the attack on september 11th that killed u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans there. that will look into the circumstances before during and
7:11 pm
after our people were murdered. molly henneberg with the news now in washington. first to the letter, the white house has gotten from the the former cia director. what is in it? >> they say they are "disappointed" by what vice president joe biden said at the debate when was asked why the obama administration said the libya attack was the result of a protest turning violent. here is what the vice president said. >> why did that go on that week? >> said exactly what we were told by the intelligence community. the intelligence community told us that as they learned more facts about exactly what happened they cnge their assessment. >> general hayden and former secretary chertoff take issue with that and say in a statement that "it is clear that any failure was not on the part of the intelligence community but on the part of white house decisionmakers who should have listened to and acted on available intelligence." the white house counters that the administration had "no actionable intelligence
7:12 pm
suggesting there would be an attack at that benghazi, libya facility." harris? >> among the growing criticisms for the white house one republican member of congress says the white house should have known our facilities in libya needed more security. >> utah representative jason chaffis was responding to vice president biden's comment that he biden was not aware of any extra requests for security in libya. he said the obama administration knew that libya was not stable and that the benghazi consulate had been targeted previously and should have done something about it. >> a good president, good leadership should be saying my goodness we were bombed in libya twice, what are we doing to improve security there. not just sit back and wait and see. >> white house spokesman jay carney says decisions about security personnel at embassy facilities are handled by the state department, not the white
7:13 pm
house. harris? >> now, more on libya tonight on "justice" with judge jeanine in an ex-be clue suv interview with pat smith, the mother of shaun smith a state department official murdered in libya. smith wants answers from the obama administration about her son's death. is tonight at 9:00 p.m. eastern right after huckabee. right now watching for a threat of twisters that will come along potentially with severe weather that is already sitting several states at this hour. and word conditions could rapidly deteriorate as the night goes on. we will go live to the fox extreme weather center coming up. and what did you think of vice president joe he biden laughing and grinning while congressman paul ryan was speaking during the presidential debate. reaction from the man who used to hold the job and knows a thing or two about debates, former vice president dick cheney. are stay close.
